Transmitter/Receiver Systems, Telephone, Electrocardiography
Definition : Telephone transmitter/receiver systems designed to transmit and receive electrocardiographic signals through telephone channels. These systems typically include at the transmitting site an electronic device (e.g., a modem) that modifies signals from medical (e.g., external, ambulatory, implanted) devices such as electrocardiography (ECG) monitors or recorders and makes them transmissible through telephone lines. At the receiving end, another electronic device (i.e., the receiver) processes the incoming signal and provides an output signal appropriate for display on ECG monitors (e.g., central station), recording, and/or for further transmission and processing by healthcare information systems. ECG telephonic transmitter/receiver systems are typically used to send signals from patients' homes, doctors' offices, and/or remote locations to hospital and other healthcare facilities using standard and/or cellular telephone lines. Dedicated systems intended for single-channel and multi-channel electrocardiographs may be also available.
